'Firefly' pilot to air

Despite ratings that are nearing cancellation territory, Fox has scheduled the previously unaired original "Firefly" pilot for Dec. 20 at 8 p.m.

"Firefly" creator Joss Whedon wrote and directed the two-hour pilot, which introduced the show's characters and told the story of how they came to be aboard a spaceship together. Fox executives found it too slow and asked for a new premiere episode with more action and humor, which is what aired when the series debuted last month.
